    Switch user doesn't work

    Whenever I try to use switch user rather than logout it goes back to GDM and the other user can login fine, do their work, but when they logout I get something akin to a white screen of death, no GDM and I have to reset X with CTRL + ALT + BACKSPACE, closing my session. Does anyone else have this or no how to fix it?
    When I change to my account within another users GUI, eg 'su myusername' in terminal everything works fine, it's just logging out and logging in through GDM that's the problem.

    Sometimes, when I'm home alone, I google myself

    I experience the white screen problem too. Have a look at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=5433697
    Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers & elders. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all then accept it and live up to it.
